Fillmore Central two-way lineman Riley Moses commits to Huskers as a walk-on

September 26, 2018

Fillmore Central lineman Riley Moses always knew he wanted to go to Nebraska to play football. On Tuesday he committed to do just that. The senior pledged to NU as a walk-on in the 2019 class.

“Growing up, it was always the thing that I wanted to do ever since I started playing football,” said the 6-foot-3, 275-pound lineman. “I wanted to play football at Nebraska.”

An unofficial visit to Lincoln on Tuesday sealed his commitment.

“I took a visit to the campus today and it felt like home,” he said. “I loved it all.”

Moses is the second known walk-on commitment in the 2019 class, joining Lincoln Southeast punter Grant Detlefsen.

Moses chose Nebraska over scholarship offers from NAIA Concordia and Division II schools UNK, Wayne State and Southwest Minnesota State. FCS South Dakota State sought him as a preferred walk-on.

Through five games, Moses has 42 tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery. Offensively, he has been credited for eight pancake blocks.
